Five Funny Blogs (Amended)

Firstly, let me be forthcoming in saying that I am only doing this because I am a sheep, and will shamelessly emulate anyone wittier or more clever than myself in an effort to sound witty and clever, and to otherwise associate myself with that person.

So, that being said, I am now shamelessly emulating Diesel in submitting, for your pleasure, Five Funny Blogs. It’s in italics, because now that it’s being done by more than one person, it’s a proper title. Here are the criteria:

1. They are funny.
2. They are made up of mostly original content (not links to other blogs, YouTube, etc.)
3. They are updated regularly.
4. There is a good chance you've never heard of them. That means they don't have a gazillion other links to them, hundreds of readers leaving comments, etc.
5. At least one of them isn't already on my blog roll. (In other words, I had to go looking for it.)

Here goes:

Five Funny Blogs

Mattress Police: The aforementioned witty person whom I am emulating.

Crummy Church Signs: Joel’s collection of crumminess is in my blogroll, but if you haven’t checked him out, you should!

Educated and Poor

The Lapped Catholic

The Drive-By Blogger: Only added to my blogroll after this list, so he counts.

So, there it is. I’ve done my good deed for the day and balanced my karma. Now go increase their hit counters.

Bless you, Greg! You have put a bright spot in my Most Crappy Day Ever, which seems to be so far about three weeks' worth of crappy days all rolled into 12 hours.

I truly appreciate the compliment. And I guess I've been tagged! I'll get on it tomorrow.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Yes...I have done the same post (I actually copied your text...sorry) on CCS.

Gregory said...

Hey, I'm not throwing stones. Laziness has no enemy here. Isn't that what blogging is all about? Instead of putting forth the effort to reach out to our families, we reach out and spill our lives to thousands of strangers across the world.

Why? Less fear of judgment. See, easier?

The Drive-by Blogger said...

Hi greogory, thanks for mentioning my blog.

Diesel said...

Gregory - First, thanks much for the mention. I also included Drive-By in my list, and concur that it's very funny. Crummy Church Signs is hilarious, and if I didn't force myself to draw the line at 5 he certainly would have been on my list. Everyone reading this should check it out for sure.

I will definitely be checking out your other suggestions too. Thanks!

I'd like to participate in this love-in. Where do I sign? ;)

Diesel said...

Dan, just copy and paste Gregory's post in your blog (replacing his blogs with selections of your own, of course). Wonderful things will happen to you as a result. And if you don't...well, let's not talk about that. Just do it, ok?
